All the components are 100 per cent bio-degradable. After ca three years decomposition sets in. Depending on soil conditions, it takes ca five years for the soil to absorb the product largely.

A specialist that advises, supports and supplies you with the right product for the right application. Also, a partner for soil stabilisation, irrigation, and protection from moles and toads.

The consequences of climate change are becoming increasingly visible in rural and in urban areas. That is why the balance between grey and green is ever more important. A good balance contributes to the health and the safety of our societies. KING RootBarrier works to help preserve a viable green and sustainably safe environment. To realise this, under- and overground infrastructure needs to be well protected. KING RootBarrier supplies a total package of root guidance products to protect underground cables and pipes and prevent root damage to cycle tracks, footpaths and road surfaces.

Additionally, planting and plant maintenance have a positive effect on the quality of the living environment and stimulate biodiversity: green outside spaces where people are glad to spend time, sustainable, durable and maintenance-friendly. This requires products that contribute to a balanced ecosystem. KING RootBarrier’s weed fabrics enable effective and durable weed control without the use of chemicals and without damage to the environment.
